The Town of Greenville selected the Wendel/Five Bugles Design team to provide a feasibility study and assist in referendum support for replacing their existing central fire station. While working with another architectural firm, the Town experienced a 70/30 failed referendum in 2015. Our team was then hired to reconsider the Town’s needs while reducing the size and cost of the proposed station. The result of these reductions and our informational campaign resulted in a successful 58% supported referendum in the Fall of 2018.
Immediately following the successful referendum, the Wendel/Five Bugles Design team began design of the new 24,680 S.F. volunteer fire station.
This new facility includes a training room, training tower, administrative offices, exercise room, state-of-the-art decontamination area and six drive-through apparatus bays.
With an eye on the future, the project also includes building out the exterior shell for future living quarters (2,290 sf) to be completed when the need arises. Future living spaces will include six dorm rooms, a day room, kitchen and dining room, until then this shelled out space will serve the department as a training space.
